Adelaide will enjoy warm and mostly sunny weather for the next few days, however Wednesday will kick-off an extended period of cold and wet conditions.
Stunning blue skies and mild winter temperatures have been a feature across the weekend and will continue until Tuesday. This will make five days in a row above the July average of 15 degrees, however it's not going to last.
Early on Wednesday morning a cold front will reach the city bringing showers, a cold airmass and moderate to fresh westerly winds. The mercury will top out near 14 degrees, but most of the day will feel more like nine or ten degrees in the wind.
Some people would hope that this weather would only last one day, but there will be similar conditions for most of the week, although with more sunny spells. At this stage the most pleasant day for being outdoors looks to be Saturday, with just the chance of a few showers, lighter winds and a top of 15 degrees.
Unfortunately for those who enjoy weather like today, they will probably have to wait until the start of August before a mild and sunny day returns to Adelaide.
